Did the French Army Band Troll “Daft Punk” Trump?

And now for something completely different from Donald Trump’s trip to France….

After the Bastille Day parade on Friday, the French Army’s marching band plays a medley from the French artists Daft Punk, including “Get Lucky”, “Digital Love”, and “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”.

Were the band trolling their American guest as a daft punk? He doesn’t seem to know as he and his twitching hair look on bemused. But French President Emmanuel Macron is enjoying himself, with a wry smile, while the French military commanders clap enthusiastically with the music.
